Mangochi, 01 April, 2022 / 9:20 pm (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Bishop of Mangochi Diocese in Malawi has extended “fraternal good wishes” to Muslims in the Southeastern African nation as they begin the Holy Month of Ramadan, which culminates in the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the festival of breaking the fast.
In his Friday, April 1 Message, Bishop Montfort Stima expresses optimism that the holy month of Ramadan will be “rich in divine blessings” for the Muslims in Malawi.
“As the Catholic Church is in the Holy Season of Lent, I wish to register our fraternal good wishes as you begin the month of Ramadan while looking forward to Eid al-Fitr,” Bishop Stima says.
The Malawian Catholic Bishop implores, “May this year's Ramadan be a month rich in divine blessings and spiritual advancement for you as you lead a life of self-correction through fasting, prayer, almsgiving, and other devotions.”
This year’s holy month of Ramadan is expected to begin on April 2 and last until May 3.
